  • Being able to turn lights off if you want
  • Sturdy

  • Limited use to PS4 and PCs
  • Smaller ears may not reek the benefits of comfort  

Design / Build Quality: 4.5
1Byone’s Gaming Headset is nicely built and feels pretty high quality right out the box. This headset is a one size fits all. It adjusts automatically via the springy leather-like strap that sits on top of your head. The speaker cups have a nice leathery feel to them as well. If you don’t have Dumbo sized ears, your ears will like fit inside the cups. Regardless the audio will sound great but if your ears fit inside, comfort will take a bit of a hit.  The only cushion on the inside of the headset is a thin fabric which honestly is anything but comfortable. The Retractable Mic is a great touch as well. LED are also a plus. Halfway down the braided wire you will find a controller that controls volume as well as the LED light on the Speakers and the Mic. 1ByOne did a great job in my opinion.

Audio / Sound Quality: 4.5
All around this headset sounds awesome. Everything sounds like it should. My main qualms are not being able to tweak the audio due to the included driver disk not work for me. The Mic Audio quality sounds great according to people I chatted with on PSN, as well as people I made hangout calls too.

Performance / Stability / Features: 4
Everything seems to work as expected. Well, almost everything. The driver software found on the included disk didn't work for me. I feel the disk was a dud because it didn't work on the 3 computers that I have tried. It's a bit of a shame because many cool goofier features are supposed to be on disk. Another thing is the device claims to have noise canceling but I beg to differ.  The features on the device itself work flawlessly. It plugs-n-plays fine with PC, MAC, as well as Sony Playstation 4 Consoles…

Value: 4
I’m finding it hard to complain about this product, You are getting a little more than you paid for. I feel a headset above $30 should have decent audio quality and this product definitely does. The clarity of the sound is staggering, the bass thumps and the Mids speak. But it’s not noise-canceling like they advertise.

Around The Web: 4.8
This Product is holding a near perfect score on

There are many good things about this gaming headset and probably the best ways to enjoy them are outside of gaming. The audio quality may surprise you. They actually are awesome for watching movies so you can bet that I'll be taking them with me on my flight to Canada in a few days. I’m a bit bummed that my driver disk didn’t work so, I missed out on a few features. In the end, it's still is a great product. Great Job 1ByOne!!!
